Kids X-games

Central Otago Mirror - - CENTRAL NEWS -

Jasper Klein won the male rip­per’s (10-11 years) ski di­vi­sion at the Cardrona Kids Cup last week. Al­most 50 kids aged be­tween 5 and 11 took to rails, boxes and kick­ers dur­ing the event last week. Mitchell Dav­ern scored the best run of the day for snow board­ers. Win­ners in the rip­per cat­e­gory each scored a one-month schol­ar­ship from Dragon, in­clud­ing about $300 worth of gear.

Peak to Peak

Last year’s Peak to Peak win­ner Adam Milne will re­turn to de­fend his ti­tle this week­end but will face stiff com­pe­ti­tion from Wanaka’s Dou­glas Al­lan (pic­tured) who has won the event three times pre­vi­ously. Also in the mix but less likely to be tak­ing the top spot will be three time win­ner Steve Gur­ney, who first won in 1995. This year marks 20 years of the pop­u­lar Queen­stown event which this year be­gins with a ski down Home­ward Bound at the Re­mark­ables, bike down the moun­tain, kayak across lake Wakatipu, run to Coronet Peak and cy­cle to the ski­field base.

Wakatipu tops

Wakatipu lost 20-19 to Ar­row­town in the Cen­tral Otago pre­miers on the week­end but se­cured a home semi-fi­nal and its top po­si­tion in the sea­son rank­ings. It will face Cromwell this week­end. Ar­row­town will play Man­iototo in the other semi­fi­nal.
